1:04 am
well stare state just as it is every day on the campaign trail, was one o upward mobity and portunity for al americans. whether this amounts to anhing, joining me is political analyst rowlan mart d eric, l me start with you on thismau, what'she signican of it? it was the media that portrayed bara obama as a st-racial president. it wasot the obama campaign. the media for a long te portrayearobama as above the old politica rhetoric both sis did. here's barack ob a black crowd that basically they aret par of the american counity. he said florida w with hurrane andrew and with hurricane katrina it wasn't. the facts were not true. hurricaneatrina got $110 billion to the gulf coast.
1:05 am
well more than w put in with the stafford exempt. th got additional grantsrom the government. had a whe position done is to a white crowd saying a whit president was denying sectio a white part of the community, the press wld be tearing h alive. me ask trent lock. >> areyou saying is also the way esidt obama w speaking at raises eyebrows forou and this shows prent obama iy h regularly porays himself? >> anderson, i'mfrom louisiana, if i were talking to you the way i talk t friends back home, you woul't be abo understand me. >> my dad is mississippi, so i did go a mississippi reunion. >> george bush sounded more uthern below the mason/dixon line. politicians on both sis do that. i fault pandering
1:06 am
politician. >> roland, wha do you this ideo? i think is utterly laughable that sean hannity a the rest of the folks make this out to something something thatas written on ne 7th, 6v2007, on, was a column i wrote wh the headline called "obama's quiet ots are real." so they want to -- >> quiet riot is a phrase he was using in thism[ very speech. >> no, but my point is i w referencing the speech that he alsoave to the hampton ministers conference. here's t deal, yu talk abou the ou of money spent on the gulf coast. first of all, new orleans and gulf coast, that's alaba and mississipp o have any impact of the selection? absolutely not. this is something more than seaz hannity's inactuation with reverend jeremiah right.
1:07 am
>> roy watkins, is there significance to this, do you lieve? >> i tnk the's no materl significance ere, but the puicans are very goodt taking nothi and turning into what apars to be something. we he to remember we live ina countrthat has forever been egical disee of racism. and it doesn't take much to spark that back up. if you look at what prident obama is saying, of course white politicians uldn't say what saying becauseafricaamericans history in this count have a history of documented discrimination thais, in fact, unniable. so when you look a what happened to katrina, anybody in rightheir mind would say, yes, there's some disparity there and any president, whi or black, nshouthe disparity, not as a criticism on the greatne of ameca but really as an opportunity for our country to get a little bit better. >> i don think tt' what presidendoing. >>o ahead, erick. >> he's telling bcrowd,
1:08 am
he uses the pase garding hurricane andrews the government saw those ople in florida as part the ofmerican community. and the ople affected arents and my family, for example, a something other than but he's addressing a largely black owd and king the point that vyly that they in new orleans gotreated fferently from people i new york and peopl in florida because they sehow wer part of the american community. fanning the flames. >> one amthere wasarty ineeatme? there's no way you can argue that. weave to accept the ct tat president obama is not a man that is he to offer just cosmetic the white house, it's ay for him to come out of t closet and to be a black maom andto use that opportunity to talkbout country needs to discuss.ur nobody, especially ternationally, can see what happened in katrina and etend that race did not prole.
1:09 am
>> one at a .time know you ed, butroland, criticresis of p obama are watching the video and saying,l saying thing he has not said to a larger audice. wd he's a fair criticm or do speaking to? here's the first thing, speaker guiess hasher quesoned whetheruld sho at that gotnificant pushbachatk regi,$ people specific i racial point. it was about new orleans being belo second. onsecond. they were offended by that. speaking i front of a black audience, as talkito thenal bla.

asdministratioofficials once insisted, the relt of a popuprotest. more damningly, this, que, mu u.s. federal government officials have confirmed the commtethat prior to the september 11 aks mission in libyaade repeated requests for increased security in benghazi. the letteroes on to detail a sees of attacks and incidents in libya that formedhe basis for those calls for more curity that the letter allewashington. we'll have more on that angle shortly. fit, arwa damon joins me. shs back from libya and joins erme h new york. veryood to see y safe and sound. walk me back you were at the site thr days afr tackthe at. that have never been sn before. describe what we see. >> well, the first in these photographs is basically the exterior of the main building the compound itself. this is the ilding where the ambassadoresided, and the right hand portion of the builng is where the so-called safe room was supposed to . occurred inside the buildi
1:17 am
itself. it doesn't look very touched on the outside. >> no. veryuch a lot of the damage on this building inside, happening inside. burng. the's one part othe builfmédig where there's an entrance wa into this so-called fe that is pretty much just a heavy metal do.oor was ut when we arrived. that's the interior of the bung. th chairight there next to that chair is where we actually found the amssador's journal the doorway leading into this asrtf the building w shut, was sing,s metal door ocking tt off. you can see it right there. there was prettyuch no way to geout, becausell of the were there had metal on the exrior of them, expt for the one windowre the ambassador's by was caied t. that ihow we crawled in.e thered they had to physically remove the barsrom that building, you e right tre ey had to remove the bars from thatindow to get the ambassor'sody out.
1:18 am
>>ow were yole to get access tthe site? s e any security tre? no. ere pretty much wa. we drove up to the main gate atheime that we were there coe head of thgeneral nation at t we were ere, the owner of the compound was there along wh some of his relatives. there were some securi the rdner, and bunch of libyans riflinthrovxugh everythi peong ande were telling that they had full-on >> rifling through things, picking up bs and pieces. th had actually laid wreath earlier on the outde of one of these things. >> sother information, there had beenlassified inrmation, whatever, could have been picked upy libyans and taken away. >> we re tolthere was a lot taken away. people said there s a safe therthat was taken away. what we also saw while there were things one uld have n of intest to investigators, had th gone. the toilet in this safe room strange blood stain on the side
1:19 am
oft. yocan see it in e images right thwe don't know what that. weon't know wh happened but to what could ha taken place. there's another part in this same arewhe looks le a ndprt isn the wa that has slid dow agai a lot of the room or part of e compound. did you see any signs of that? >> what's clear is tt the exterior of the compnd, the exterior of the varis buildis, were not seon fire. thburng that took place that what does that tell you? do youee any signs orpgs, >>here is one hole in the main ilding that oks like it could haven caused ba rocket-propelled gre.ere ishe m the mainldg wa splintered, looked as if it had possibly beeforced open. there waholein the walls, it look like they could havbeen
1:20 am
bu lot of signsf ry heavy, in be cd rocket-propelled grenades but we still die even three days on a number of shl casings onroun the g agai other bits and pies that had beeveifled roug a lot of things had been takenbut there wereits ande provid clues. >> overall theecurity atn in benghaz the fbi has not gonen. therwabe able to setp a perimet safeerimeter that ey cou do an vestign,hat mortars could be fed in.liight ? >> it's very mucopthere still i security, at least there wasn't whene left there around a week ago. there aren't checkpoints leading up to it, for example. it's very open.ould they hypoth the liby government has said th're lling to provide investigators withecurity usg whatever assets they have, whether it's members of the byanrmy, members of the various militias who they de
1:21 am
to be even mortrusorthy. cld a frieny militia p there seal off large enoughre? >> the februar17th militia which is the largest one in powerful one ithe one that eventually d come to t aid of thoseho were in the consule while the tack was taking place. they have offered security and was members of this mit in fact, who say that they were the ones warned e americans three days befe the attack took place at there w a heightened threat agait them.send. an, fran and arwa bo have beening ne oth story really from thbeginning.fn you know, fran s homend security advisor during the ini as we oftein external advisory committee and recently traveled to libya with her employer, mcandrews and forbes. she had actually met with ambassador stevens. what do you make of the pictures you see of what arwa's talking about? >> as i listen to arwa, it just reinforces what we said last week and we've said from the
1:22 am
beginning. investigators have to go there, even if you didn't have all the physical evidence there that arwa just described to our viewers, you would want to know from the witness interviews, anderson, you would want to know measurements, you would want to be able to take people through it to really understand what the dynamic was. but then you see things like handprints and blood samples. one of the things, the first thing you would do, i'll give you an example, that is you would take the blood sample off the toilet and the bidet and see whether or not it matched first to the ambassador's. did he fall? there's all sorts of things you would want to know. you know, the pictures we've seen publicly of his body doesn't look like he did, but you don't know. and all those sorts of bits of information, it is true, it would be a less valuable crime scene now because people have rifled through it, but there's always some value and what they're telling us now is that they think the risk is too great in terms of the security, but i have never understood, if the february 17th brigade was there, they were friendly, they were
1:23 am
willing, and we usted them, certainly, before the attack, why we wouldn't have taken them along with u.s. military assets and set up the perimeter that the fbi needed. >> i mean, even theoretically, a lot of people will tweet in and say well, if you were able to get to it, how come some american investigators wouldn't be able to. i guess it's a question of how much time american investigators would want to spend to actually do full, thorough forensic investigation. >> that's part of it, anderson, but the other piece to this is they represent -- when the american investigators go in, they represent the united states. there's a certain international respect for journalists. it's not -- it's plenty dangerous for arwa to be there but they represent a u.s. target. >> it would be a heightened target, obviously. i guess part of it, too, if mortar fire was involved in the initial attack or rpg fire, if they were to come under fire, the investigators, they would want to be able to return fire to take out mortar positions, anti-battery positions and to do that, you would need a significant capability to return fire. >> that's exactly right. and everybody we've spoken to suggests that look, if we had to go in, we didn't want to bring
1:24 am
in that big a footprint and it would have been difficult for the libyan government, although cooperative, to agree to that at such a fragile time in the establishment of this. >> you have new information on the u.s. preparing target packages. what have you -- >> you know, anderson, it's funny when i read this, i would have been surprised if they weren't doing that. remember, after the east african embassy bombings, the clinton administrations launched into training camps in afghanistan and sudan. this is part of the usual process, right? you look at the intelligence and the military will prepare and say what targets do we have, what is our basis for making them a target, that is, capture, kill, target with drones, and what is our likelihood of success. also, there's a secondary process of who would we li to have more on, if we had that information, we could prepare better target packages, and they'll levy requirements on the intelligence agencies to go out and get that information for them. so it's sort of an ongoing
1:25 am
process between the intelligence community and the military community as they prepare in case the president asks for options. in the meantime, on parallel tracks, you've got congress, you've got the state department investigation, and you've got the fbi. >> arwa, you spent a lot of time in war zones. is there something about this that surprised you, about what you saw, about gaining access to this site? >> it was that it was really such a soft target. you would not expect any establishment, never mind a consulate, to have had such a lack of security to it, especially in a place where there had been attacks against the west. the location itself had been targeted and the u.s. was monitoring not too far away, around a three hour drive away, and around it, the activity of known extremist groups who, in some cases, are being led with individuals who are directly affiliated, if not members of al qaeda in and of itself. it was such a soft target. >> arwa and i were talking earlier, and the thing that
1:26 am
strikes me about that, anderson, is every counterterrorism specialist will tell you one of the hallmarks of al qaeda is they return to failed targets. so the "uss cole" that was the success the year before, the trade center in '93, then back in 2001. the notion that there were at least two attempts at this consulate and nobody made this a really hard target is really a dereliction of duty. that's part of the outrage you're hearing. there's plenty of partisanship in washington but there's a certain sense of outrage and i think that's part of why congressman issa has whistle blowers. how could we let this happen? why tomorrow's debate could have as much to do with gestures and words. we'll talk to an expert on body language. it is really fascinating, her perspective, next. i looked at my options. then i got a medicare supplement insurance plan. [ male announcer ] if you're eligible for medicare,

1:29 am
mitt romney and president obama face off if their first debate tonight. two experts weigh in coming up.
1:30 am
1:31 am
let's dig deeper now, president obama and mitt romney take the stage tomorrow night, how they look, what they say during the debate could speak volumes over what they actually say. their body language speaks volumes. we have an associate professor at harvard business school. she joins me now. you say when it comes to gestures, ones that convey power and warmth are really important to making effective politician, and you point to former president bill clinton as master of warmth. i want to show a video of him during a town hall with ross per roet and then president bush back in 2002. >> you know people who lost their homes and lost their homes? >> uh-huh. >> he's walking toward this woman, toward this voter, away from the people on stage. so he's focused on the voter,
1:32 am
not on the other candidates. he's gentle, his body language is gentle. he's leaning toward her, he's even softened his voice. he's nodding, makes incredible eye contact. he signals to people when he is talking to them, you are the only person in the room. you are the only person. the clinton tractor beam that really melted people. >> i feel your pain without even saying it. >> that's exactly right. >> there's a classic moment between al gore and george bush back from 2008, i want to show that and see what al gore does and how george bush reacts? >> not only what your philosophy and position on issues, but can you get things done? and i believe i can. >> explain that? >> this looked very overscripted and rehearsed. he's decided to show dominance and sort of alpha bush by walking into his space, but it just completely backfires. it doesn't look natural, so it
1:33 am
makes him look disingenuous, and bush happened handles it to incredibly well that it looks worse for al gore. and then you can see how wooden al gore's face looks in response to that reaction. >> in terms of classic power moves during the debate, what are they? >> one is who initiates the handshake. they are both vying to be the one who initiates the handshake. second, during the handshake, look at who is grabbing whose arm? obama often will not only shake the hand, but grab the arm of the person whose hand he's shaking. that's a real power move. another one is to hold the sides of the podium, and that -- that allows you to expand and expansive postures are associated with power, strength and come indianapolis. >> are there positive versus negative body moves you are looking for in tomorrow night's debate? >> let's talk about the negatives first.
1:34 am
they are fun. please, no finger pointing. it almost never works. >> is that why politics do the thumb on the first thing? i have never seen an actual human use this gesture. politicians seem to do that. >> i think that's a clinton thing. it looks like he's holding a remote control. i think open gestures are almost always more effective than any closed gestures. >> it's important for a candidate's body language to match what they are saying, right? a classic example going back to 2007, john mccain talking about osama bin laden. i wa to play that. >> another painful one. >> on the subject of osama bin laden, he is responsible for the deaths of thousands of innocent americans, he is now orchestrating other attacks on the united states of america, we will do whatever is necessary, we will track him down, we will capture, bring him to justice and i'll follow him to the gates of hell. >> okay. >> oh, gosh. >> that was like a smile. >> yes. so that's -- you know, sort of nonverbal asin cronie.
1:35 am
between either the content of what the person is saying and the nonverbals are saying or asynchronies between the nonverbals. when you are saying you are following someone to the gates of hell, you shouldn't be smiling. ewers don't know why, but it makes them feel bad. it is very adversive to see that kind of thing. >> there are reports that romney's team is preparing what are called zingers for tomorrow night's debate. when a candidate has been stung by one, it can be very effective. the exchange between ronald reagan and walter mondale demonstrates a very effective use of this. let's take a look. >> i will not make age an issue of this campaign. i am not going to exploit for political purposes my opponent's youth and inexperience. >> did mondale's reaction help him there? >> i don't think it hurt him.
1:36 am
i think that what -- i think what you saw was net positive. i think it definitely helped reagan, he owned this possible criticism verbally and delivered it so comfortably and warmly. mondale's reaction was comfortable, and warm in response. the general feeling was positive, but people are going -- voters attribute that positive feeling they had to reagan, not to mondale. >> it's fascinating stuff. amy, appreciate your expert advice. thank you. >> thanks, thank you. >> i find that stuff fascinating. we'll look for body language tomorrow night. a lot more to follow. susan hendricks with a 360 bulletin. according to american airlines, an internal investigation shows an improperly installed clamp is to blame for loose passenger seats on six planes, two of which made emergency landings, the lamp is used on 47 boeing 757s in
1:37 am
america's fleet. most have been inspected. the others will be checked shortly. mike mcqueary has formed a whistleblower lawsuit against the university. he is seeking $4 million from the school for allegedly defaming him and firing him for cooperation with prosecutors. jimmy hoffa's remains are not buried under a storage shed in suburban detroit. soil test results show no evidence of human remains on that property. and sheriff's deputies in pinellas county, florida, are searching for this woman who tried to ride a manitee on sunday. they say she violated a state law against mammals in the water and she could face a demeanor fine. >> leave manatees alone. they get run over by the boats, sweet, gentle creatures. >> it's not a dolphin. >> don't be grabbing dolphins either. >> good point. >> susan, thanks. president obama and mitt romney prepping heavily for the first debate less than 24 hours away. how high are the stakes? who has the edge? what are each candidate's weak
1:38 am
spots? we'll look at that next in the program.
1:39 am
1:40 am
a border patrol agent shot and killed and another wounded. what happened in arizona? details ahead.
1:41 am
1:42 am
less than 24 hours from now, with the election five weeks away, president obama and mitt romney will face off. both men have been prepping heavily. evidence shows presidential debates can shift a race. joining me now alan schroeder, a professor of the school of journalism in northeast university in boston. author of "presidential debates, 50 years of high-risk tv" and patrick millsap who served as chief of staff in newt gingrich's campaign. patrick, you say that newt gingrich's pious baa loney line is one of the strongest hits during his campaign run against
1:43 am
mitt romney. >> can we drop some of the pious baloney? you ran in '94 and lost. that's why you weren't serving in the senate for rick santorum. suddenly citizenship showed up in your mind, level with the american people. you have been running since the 1990s. >> how much of those zingers are pre-thought out and what does mitt romney have to do to avoid taking a big hit tomorrow night? >> that was all newt. part of great thing about newt, he knew the topic, knew the weak points, but prepared to answer the question. if you can come up with pious baloney, that puts a cherry on top. if you googled baloney two hours after the debate, you would get oscar meyer and then newt gingrich. romney has the same opportunity, when it comes to obama's populous messages, i'm one of
1:44 am
the common guys and you're out of touch. romney has an opportunity to say you have made $2 million in one year, you spent more money in your time in the white house than the royal family. how are you one of the common map you say you're a part of? i think preparation is important, knowing the material is important. but then being comfortable enough in your own skin and comfortable with the topic that you can come up with a pious baloney moment. those aren't planned, they aren't scripted, it just happens when it happens. >> but, professor schroeder, we've heard reports that the romney campaign has been preparing some so-called zingers that mitt romney's practiced and can use. i don't know why they would leak that kind of information, because it's like setting you up to fail if it doesn't work out. but how important are little lines like that, do you think? in the history of debates? >> i think they can be very important. i am suspicious about the fact that they are talking about it so much in advance. the mere fact they are
1:45 am
telegraphing it means they don't plan to go through with it. it's hard to work a zinger in organically and that's the beauty of a line like pious baloney, it flowed naturally into the conversation. >> in terms of -- a lot of people remember newt gingrich talking about moon colonies during the primary. mitt romney hit back at him on that. let's take a look. >> i spent 25 years in business if i had a business executive come to me and said they want to spend a few billion to put a colony on the moon, i'd say you're fired. >> you think that's an example of romney at his best, straight toward and exerting business experience of what he knows. >> i do. it made newt gingrich look foolish and then subliminally, reinforced romney as someone with business credentials, he got to refer to him as a ceo.
1:46 am
you want a two-pronged attack, helps you and hurts the other guy. >> it does -- mitt romney does struggle sometimes when if comes to attempts at humor or levity, he made a george costanza reference that felt a little debated. not that there is anything wrong with that. this exchange with rick perry. i want to play that. >> rick, i'll tell you what. $10,000? $10,000 bet. >> i'm not in the betting business. >> oh, okay. okay. >> that clearly got a lot of pickup. one of the dangers of offscript moments for a candidate like mitt romney. >> i think that this debate, the structure, you heard the audience laughing and a give and take. this is one of the silent debates where the audience is not going to be participating, florida, i think that you were seeing the same scenario that is set up for romney to give his two best debate performances in florida, which we just saw there.
1:47 am
exactly where we are now in the campaign and that is his -- you know, he might feel like his back is against the wall, his type of debate, no one debate prep fits all. if you look at the difference of the "tonight show," johnny carson liked the audience to be away from him. and jay leno likes to be amongst the audience and both were equally as funny doing the same job. the type of debate we'll see tomorrow night suits romney's strengths and he has the ability to stay on -- stay on the offensive and really call out obama. >> yeah. >> on some of the things, just like with newt. >> professor, it's interesting. professor obama, not without his own weaknesses, hasn't debated since 2008. some criticize him for being long-winded. professorial. no offense, professor. and there was this moment when he debated hillary clinton. let's take a look. >> he's very likeable. i agree with that.
1:48 am
i don't think i'm that bad. >> you're likeable enough, hillary. >> i appreciate that. >> a fine line between, you know, putting your opponent on notice and not appearing to be mean. >> yes. the thing about that clip is she's so self-effacing and good, and he comes back, barely makes eye contact, sort of writing as he makes his line. it's a contrast between the two of them that really hurts him in that clip. >> especially in the double box. professor schroeder, thank you for being with us and patrick millsaps. we'll be watching tomorrow. it will be fascinating. 50 million people expected to watch. 150 million people killed in syria today. we'll tell you what an opposition spokesman is saying about the foreign minister's call for a dialogue next.

susan hendricks back with the "360" news and business bulletin. >> another deadly day in syria. an opposition group says at least 150 people have been killed in violence throughout the country today. an opposition spokesman said no syrian is willing to sit down with the killers of the syrian government who have been responsible for every drop of blood that has been shed. that was in response to syria's foreign minister calling for a dialogue at the u.n. general assembly yesterday. a border patrol agent was shot and killed today in arizona. 30-year-old nicholas ivy was shot after responding to a
1:53 am
sensor that went off near the border. another agent was wounded. the fbi and local police are investigating the shooting. new york's attorney general says more lawsuits against big banks are on the way as a task force investigates the crash of 2008. the first suit filed is against jpmorgan chase over allegations that bear stearns which it owns committed fraud against investors. the weather channel has decided hey, hurricanes get names, why not blizzards. the network announced today it will give names to the worst winter storms to make it easier to follow their progress. it already has a list from a to z of winter storm names. including athena, gandalf, and zeus. >> interesting. susan, thanks. coming up, who's hungry? a restaurant got in trouble for wheeling in some road kill. mmm, road kill. "ridiculist" is next. 0ñ@ñfñ matt's brakes didn't sound right... i brought my car to mike at meineke...

yes, it's that time of the night. time for the "ridiculist." tonight we're adding restaurant road kill. yes, that would be road kill found in a restaurant. in williamsburg, kentucky, a woman was at a chinese restaurant at lunchtime with the ambiance was somewhat compromised by the sight of a deer carcass being unceremoniously dragged into the kitchen. you know what, i think i will let her give you the specifics. >> there was like a tail that was this big. it was a big white fuzzy tail, then like a leg was sticking out of the garbage can. i had a box on top of it and they were wheeling it in there like really quick like trying to hurry and one of the other employees were like mopping up the blood that was like dripping out of the garbage can on to the floor.
1:58 am
>> oh, dear. so the lady called the health department and an inspector says sure enough, when he showed up, there was indeed a dead deer in the kitchen. he told a local news station that the owner's son admitted to picking it up on the side of the road. on the highway, as a matter of fact. the county sheriff elaborates. >> they had it cut up and they were dissecting it. >> okay. so they were dissecting it. maybe the kitchen staff teaches a rogue eighth grade biology class in the back. that's a logical explanation, right? when people heard about this, the whole road kill and the restaurant thing, they didn't like it one bit. in fact, one might say they were disgusted. very, very disgusted. >> disgusted. very, very disgusted. >> i was just like oh, god, you know. i was like, i couldn't believe it. i just could not. >> now, the county health department has shut the place down. they say the restaurant will have to be thoroughly cleaned before they even think of
1:59 am
letting it reopen. burning question is, if it does open again, will people want to go there now? >> for them to pick up something off the road and who knows how long it's been dead, no. >> i would very thoroughly check my food before i ate it if i did. >> i'm not sure, but maybe they're overreacting just a bit. look, it's getting to the point where you can't even wheel one bloody deer carcass into a restaurant in a strip mall in kentucky in the middle of lunch without people freaking out and calling the health department. now, the people who own the restaurant say it was for their own personal use, that they weren't going to serve the deer. judge for yourself. perhaps my perspective is slightly skewed because i do live in new york city, where we pretty much assume that restaurant food is at least 10%
